There are only two ways to do what you want:  With a PS special,
or by abusing the WEEK special.

The latter is easier and works with the HTML and TkRemind back-ends:

REM SPECIAL WEEK ([trigdate()-date(year(trigdate()), 1, 1)+1])

The former might be something like this, though it only works for
PostScript calendars:

REM SPECIAL PS Border Border 2 div moveto /DayFont findfont 6 scalefont setfont ([trigdate()-date(year(trigdate()), 1, 1)+1]) show

If you know PostScript, you can play around with the PS special to position
the day number where you like it.
